Most of you have watched MMA fights. From the casual observer, it simply looks like two guys beating each other mercilessly.
And, while violence is certainly an element to the fighting these guys participate in, there are so many lessons that can be extracted from fighting in the cage.
My guest today, Charlie Brenneman, shares with us how to be more disciplined, how to develop a perfect day, and what separates the winners from the losers.

Meet Charlie “The Spaniard” Brenneman
Charlie “The Spaniard” Brenneman is a professional mixed martial arts fighter, speaker, mentor and author.
Following a successful high school wrestling career, Charlie took his talents to Lock Haven University where he achieved a top 12 finish at Division I Nationals and 1st Team All-Academic.
Now, here’s where it gets interesting: After teaching Spanish for three years and winning Spike TV’s Pros vs. Joes, Charlie decided to leave his job to pursue a master’s degree and begin his professional fighting career.
In 2011, he was ranked as high as #7 in the world in The UFC, and in 2015, he published his autobiography, Driven: My Unlikely Journey from Classroom to Cage.
